A riveting musical performance relies on more than skill. When played live, northern Indian classical music is shaped by the artist’s mood and unique rapport with the audience. In this performance, Ikhlaq Hussain will take you on a spiritual journey as he sets the mood through evening ragas and his mastery and artistry of the sitar. Hussain will begin with the “aalap,” the melodic improvisation that introduces and develops ragas while invoking the divine. As the raga unfolds, it seeks to touch the very core of your being, drawing you into the music itself.
